Well, I saw the thing comin' out of the sky,

it had one long horn, one big eye.
                             G
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee!",
   A                                   D
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

CHORUS:
D
It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
 A
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
  D
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
A                     D
Sure looks strange to me. (One eye?)

He said, "It's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine.
                                 A
But that's not the reason that I came to land..
